I like the sound they make. It reminds me of childhood. It's like listening to the sound of rain. It's soothing in a way.
in my area they're so repetitive that you only notice them when they stop singing, it's only a bother when there's loads of them in a place with tall trees.
actually it's so ingrained in me I feel weird when the temperature is too hot and I dont hear any.
GOD WHY WON'T THEY SHUT UP!?! The past few years there's been a few Mississippi Kites (large birds) that love to eat these, but they're not here this year and it's like the cicadas are mocking it.REEEEEEEEEEEEEEE-EREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
